New Jersey beaches have received much praise this year—Keansburg, N.J., is the latest town to be honored.

REALTOR Magazine—the official magazine of the National Association of Realtors—recently released their “Cheapest Beach Towns in America, list and placed Keansburg as No. 8, with a median list price for beachfront property of $140,000. The magazine looked at areas with a population of at least 1,000 to come up with their top 10 list.

 “We take pride in being an affordable beach town—with all the beauty and appeal of some of the larger resort towns—and we’re thrilled to be recognized REALTOR Magazine,” says Keansburg Mayor George Hoff.

The square-mile, coastal town boasts affordable real estate opportunities for young couples, families and first-time home owners alike.

“Keansburg offers a serene, safe, affordable and appealing lifestyle to its residents,” says Councilman Arthur Boden. “We are open for new business as well as pleasure, and we welcome people to enjoy Keansburg and see for themselves that we are a borough on the rise.”
 

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

While many know Colorado as a big craft beer state (fifth place ranking in the United States for number of craft breweries) and the founding place of Coors, its place on the nation’s wine map continues to expand. Just as some people prefer an IPA to a stout, some folks are more sauvignon black than merlot. What’s a meeting and event planner to do? 

Go local

 

It’s a magazine editor’s dream to receive an email saying, “I have a great event space I wanted to get on your radar.” Sometimes, the statement leads to a ho-hum, not very interested reaction, but this one has me excited to see the results upon the expected fall opening of Society bordering the River North Art District (RiNo) in Denver. Formerly The Wrangler bar and nightclub, vacant since 2018, the three-story, 15,000-square-foot multipurpose collective at 3090 N. Downing St. will house three concepts: Thrive, Vibe, and Alive.
